Turn Around

Going Going Going, Gone……
I can feel it in my Bone
You are nowhere in my Zone
There is Solitude, I am Lone
Indifference in your Tone
The Sarcasm that you Hone
Screaming at a 100 Sone
Used to this hurt, I am Prone
What made you turned to Stone
Don’t make me a lonely Crone
I keep waiting for your Phone
For the sake of good days, Bygone
My Heart is yours to bet, Impone
Your Kingdom is my soul, Your Throne

Gender Equality- Men’s Perspective

I am writing about a  very casual discussion that I had with one of my male friends.  The discussion was about “Gender Equality”.  One of the most talked about, debated topic. One of my favourite too.  Many feel it should exist, many others feel it can be done away with as both genders can never be on the same scale of equality and very few think it does exist.  The count of people belonging to the third category is so small that could be dismissed.  Basically, we are left with two opinions/ sects/ mind frames.

Hi Everyone,

I am writing about a  very casual discussion that I had with one of my male friend.  The discussion was about “Gender Equality”.  One of the most talked about, debated topic. One of my favorite too.  Many feel it should exist, many others feel it  can be done away with as both genders can never be on same scale of equality and very few think it does exist.  The count of people belonging to the third category is so small that could be dismissed.  Basically we are left with two opinions/ sects/ mind frames.

So it was during one of our casual conversation that eventually paved way for our discussion regarding gender equality I got an idea about how men perceive gender equality.  It all started when I came across a news related to domestic violence against women.  Being a women I naturally felt disturbed and expressed…

GROOM ON SALE!

Now if you come to hypocrisy, We are the most skilful hypocrites in the world. All of us are experts at practising virtue at a distance. On first encounter every boy’s father invariably remarks – ‘we don’t need anything. Whatever you give is your choice. It will be after all a gift to your daughter. The demand is never openly made. Someone from groom’s family will innocuously ask about items being given to the bride so that they will not purchase the same for the bride’s room in their house. “What will be the point in duplicating the purchase of a Television, fridge, washing machine, play station, double bed, dressing table, safe, decorative items, modular kitchen, car, etc.? It would be better if the monetary value of these items is calculated and cash is given to groom to purchase items of his liking.” It’s like a naming a ceremony, replace the word “Dowry” with ” father’s gift to his daughter”.

“Rakhungi naino huzoo, Laado ko main dur na dungi
Bangla bhi dungi, aji Motor bhi dungi
Sona to dungi zaroor, Laado lo maain sur na dungi”

My granny used to sing this song when she was overwhelmed with love for me; I would be sitting in her lap, thinking WOW! Someday I will get married, and granny would give me so many things, but not get me married far off. This is the psychology of most Indian parents. They are ready to shower the groom and his family in all the riches but want to see their daughter’s happiness at any cost. But sadly, more often than not, the exact opposite happens. Instead of buying her the love of her husband and in-laws, they buy her misery, torture, pain, exploitation, not just physically but emotionally and mentally.

Usually, when we hear any case of dowry killing, burning of newlywed brides…
